NOTD: American Apparel Mouse & Cotton

Posted on: August 13, 2013

Mouse and Cotton from American Apparel done in my half & half manicure that I’m sure I invented, either way I love this look. I am in love with Cotton and I believe Mouse to be a Commander in Chic dupe. They seem very much the same color.

This polish went on beautifully and only took minutes to dry. The coverage was terrific with only 1 coat, but of course you know I always do 2 coats. I think it makes the polish look just that much better. I did use a quick dry top coat. I give Mouse and Butter from the American Apparel set 5/5 stars. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟. Look for more reviews coming soon on all the colors, well maybe not ALL but most of them!

Did you happen to pick up this set. You can find it here if still available. It’s 17 bottles of American Apparel Nail Lacquer for $15.99 with free shipping. Mine came in a flat rate box and I ordered it on a Friday and received Monday.

💅 As always, thanks for stopping by!

It looks great Judi.What top coat are you using these days?Linda xo


I have been using either SV, or Sally Hansen I. The red bottle or the butter London PD Quick Dry. I also mixed a bottle of half SV with half NYC GrNd Central Station, which is not a quick dry top coat but a quick dry polish. That did to work so well for me, lots of cracking. Sorry, such a long answer….

Love this, Judi! You know, I’m seeing “your” half and half manicure all over the place, it seems! I’m gonna try it one day myself and put it on my little blog! I can’t wait to hear how the American Apparel wears for you and I hope you have a great day!


That’s nice to hear but how come you didn’t tell me about your blog? What is the name? I’d love to read it. You’re such a sweet person. Xoxo

It’s brand-new, girl! I started it about 2 – maybe 3 weeks ago. I’m still workin’ out the kinks! I’ve got a lot to learn and truth be told, I’m not crazy about the name, but it’s about the best thing I could come up with – HA! But I’d LOVE for you to pop over! It’s: http://allaboutthepolish.blogspot.com/

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
